Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs continue preparing for the season

On Monday night the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs and head coach Sam Ftorek were the featured guests at the monthly meeting of the Roanoke Valley Sports Club.

Tickets went on sale this week and the Dawgs are less than a month away from opening training camp.

The season opener is on October 21st and Ftorek has been busy with everything from assembling a roster to making sure the Berglund Center is ready to roll.

“Things are starting to fall into place. We've got most of the guys signed for tryouts. Now we're working on our itinerary for preseason and training camps and it's go time. There's a buzz around town everywhere you go. We're doing a great job of selling tickets and getting sponsors involved. Again, the community has been behind us a hundred percent so it's been great. We're really chomping at the bit to get out there,” Ftorek said.
